Nice beach!

Very nice beach with easy access and plenty of free parking along with restaurants. While wintering in Florida we enjoy visiting so many beaches.

Wide and wonderful

Beach area was wonderful to walk on, and wide enough that it didn't seem crowded. White sand and good waves!

Easy access with great amenities

We thoroughly enjoyed this beach. Shelling is the best I’ve seen of any beach. It is close proximity to a park and parking. As well as the Salt Life bar, which is a great place to eat to take in the views.

Visited some friends so beach side crab racing! It was overcast outside but it didn’t stop it from the parking lot bring full.

Nice rocks, nice beach

Great Beach

This is a great beach that has carpeting that is great for strollers and wheelchairs to be taken to the beach easily. It can get a bit crowded but there are so many beaches around that you can always find one that is less crowded.
